Jungle Book: Origins

  • Movie

Warner Bros. has pushed its live-action Jungle Book: Origins from 2016 to 2017.

The film, which is based on Rudyard Kipling’s short stories and has Andy Serkis at the helm, was originally slated to hit theaters on Oct. 21, 2016, but will now release on Oct. 6, 2017. It stars Rohan Chand and Mowgli, with Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan, Peter Mullan, and Serkis lending their voices.

Geostorm, a sci-fi adventure starring Gerard Butler, will take its vacated spot. Independence Day writer/producer Dean Devlin is directing that film, set in a world where satellites can control the climate.

Jungle Book: Origin‘s new date means it will not debut a full two years after Disney’s live-action take on the classic, titled The Jungle Book. The Disney film—which Jon Favreau is directing and stars Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Ben Kingsley, Scarlett Jonhansson, Idris Elba, and Lupita Nyong’o—is set for an Oct. 9, 2015, release.
